Clashes In Cuba: Clover Canyon 2014 Resort S/S


Roses, Cigars And Eccentrics, Oh My. This Clover Canyon Collection For Next Spring/Summer Is One To Gawk At. These Details Are Beyond Realistic. Designer Roze Nichols Is The Head Behind This Collection With A Group Of People On The Project With Her. Every Collection Shes Inspired By A Place And/Or Time, Her And Her Team Then Put Prints, Objects And All Together to Bring That Place, To Life And To Fashion. If You Didnt Guess, Which Surprising I Did Before I Even Looked Up More Info On This Collection, The Inspiration Is Cuba.
The First Ensemble To The Left, A Bomber Jacket And Cropped Jogger Pant, Has About 6 Different Patterns To It, Including Color Block And Aztec Print (Shown In The Detail Circles). To The Right, A Fitted To Flare  Dress. The Center Palm Tree Graphic Is Surrounded By Peruvian And Chocolate Brown Patterns That Gives An Earthy Feel.
Can We Just Applaud The Look To The Right? This Is the Look That Made Me HAVE To Write About This Collection. The Cigars (Top Detail Circle) Make You Look Twice And Definitely Says Cuba. Also Some Hawaiian Floral Print, And Checkerboard Are In The Two Pieces, Almost Giving A Nineties Feel. The Tropical Flowers Collaged Over Prints Are Refreshing, Making Me Want Spring Back As They Leave.

On Clover Canyon's Blog There Was An Image For Inspiration Of The Collection, Which Was Printed On A Shirt for this Collection (Look At The 4th Look Above).

Fur In Fashion Can Be Dated All The Way Back To The 1400s But Wearing Fur Has Been Around Before We Considered It "Fashion". In History One Of The Things Natives Of America Would Trade With Europe Was Fur (The Fur Trade). Also We Know When Tribes Would Hunt And Kill Animals, They'd Wear Their Fur For Warmth. Fast Forwarding To Today Fur Has Became Iconic For The Colder Seasons In Fashion. Since The 1900s It Was A Fashion Statement To Wear Fur, And A Thing For The Wealthy. Monkey, Raccoon, And Fox Fur Were Made Into Coats, Stoles, And Hats. Today Real Fur Clothing Is Not As Popular As It Was, But Faux Fur Is Still Here. Appearing Every Year In Fashion Week Atleast Once. Bold Blue, Or Icy Ivory, Faux Fur Can Be Made Into Any Color. As Fun As Fur Sounds Today It Is Controversial In The Fashion Industry, And As We Know PETA Always Will Have A Take On It. I Love The Way Fur Looks, And Ill Be Honest Fake Fur Appeals More to Me Than Real. Just Decided To Share My Love For Faux Fur Here. Also I Found A Blog Dedicated To Fur, Fur Insider, Which I Found Helpful, And Full Of Love.

Signature Prints: Mara Hoffman Spring 2014 RTW Collection


 

 

 

Mara Hoffman Is One Of My Favorites And She Never Fails Me Each Time. Her Bold, Contrasting Native Prints Are A Signature. When You See A Piece Of Clothing, You Will Know Its Her By This Print. She Kept This Collection Diverse Using Chiffon To Mesh. Her Mesh Pieces Are Threaded Over With That Fabulous Print, Her Signature. What More Is There To Love About This Lady's Statement, As A Person Who Doesn't Wear Much Color, Its Either Be Bold Or Don't Do It, And She Does It For Me.

A Beautiful Duo Behind This Cutting, Minimal, Sharp Collection. Cushnie et Ochs's 2012 Spring Ready To Wear Line Is Perfect For The Current "Cutout" Trend. A lot Of Pieces Scream "Rihanna" But I Can See Many More In The Pieces.

 
Although The Summer Is Over For Now, Vacations Are Beginning For Those Trying To Escape The  Cold Until Next Summer. Everyone Will Be Looking For Their Next Swimsuit Soon, And The Trendiest. The Bikini Above Has A Simple Symmetrical Lattice Cutout On The Top, Cutouts Being The Current Trend.

 

 

The White Bands In The Two Looks Above Were A Perfect Touch To These Dresses. Keeping Them Minimal Yet Eye Catching. The Shaping Of The Gray Dress Is Very Edgy And Daring, Love It.
